As the Indian side conquered the Gabba Fortress in Brisbane by defeating the Australian side, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Sachin Tendulkar and the entire cricket fraternity praised the Indian side for their victory and appreciated the depth of the Indian squad. Their eight players were ruled out before the match due to injury and unavailability. ..Their primary fast bowler Bumrah was ruled out ahead of the last Test. … Their bowling attack was called “inexperienced” by cricketing experts. ….They historically won the Test, clinched the victory, at an extraordinary venue where their opponent had not suffered a loss in 32 years. Yes! We are of course talking about India’s epic win over Australia at the 4th Test of the Border-Gavaskar trophy. India chased a massive target of 328 runs on a pitch with cracks on the last day of the Test. It was the phenomenal effort of the likes of Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh pant, Washington Sundar under the captainship of Ajinkya Rahane.
Here’s how Twitter reacted after India Defeated Australia in the 4th Test match:
Indian skipper who’s on a paternity absence lauded his Team and acknowledged the grit with which the Indian side batted.
